Challenges in current design

New ways of thinking are required to challenge conservatism and stereotypes in the industry, which are currently delaying the reduction of LCOE.

Megavind will facilitate challenge of “conventional wisdom” in the industry and the “just to be safe” mentality through the development of six innovation papers focusing on the subjects with the largest potential for innovation, and hence for reducing LCOE. 

Subjects for innovation papers:

  • Substations (possibilities for radical simplification or total elimination of offshore substations)
  • Array cables
  • Export cables
  • Simplification of platforms on the Transition Piece (TP)
  • Foundations
  • Novel sensors and features for wind turbines and wind turbine systems

Form: Development of six innovation papers followed by a workshop for each subject

Target group: Offshore developers, offshore industry, regulatory bodies and policy makers
